As a footnote, readers may remember a previous blog which described, as one of the dangerous sports on offer, being towed behind a skidoo on skis (like waterskiing). Well, I hear that the inevitable has happened: someone fell off and broke his arm. Apparently, if you get hurt on non-work related activities and can’t work – you don’t get paid.
